Communities across the state support bike ride

The 14th annual Red-Spoke, a premiere, five-day, fully-supported recreational bicycle tour, will leave Redmond Town Center on Wednesday, July 11. The fundraising ride will arrive on Sunday, July 15, in Spokane, where riders will be bused back to Redmond. The tour is Redmond Rotary's sole major fundraiser this year.
   The 300-mile ride takes bicyclists through amazing scenery, as they pass over the Cascade Mountains, along river canyons and through rolling wheat fields. The ride is recreational, meaning riders go at their own pace. Meals are provided at pre-designated sites.
   The ride is limited to the first 100 riders. Children are welcome.
